The first global iTWO enabled course is fully booked in the world's Top Institute of Technology
Atlanta, GA, USA, 24 August 2015. RIB Software AG, the world's leading provider of iTWO Big Data 5D BIM technology for the construction and infrastructure industry, today announced the first global iTWO Enabled Course started at the Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech).
Ranked as the NO.7 best public university in America, Georgia Institute of Technology is a well-known technology and research University in the world, located in Atlanta, Georgia, USA. The reason that RIB chose to collaborate with Georgia Tech is because of its high reputation in AEC, especially in BIM education and their highly qualified faculty, such as Professor Chuck Eastman, who is known as the "father of BIM". Georgia Tech's BIM-oriented curriculum makes an excellent platform to introduce iTWO new thinking, new working method and new technology. The first iTWO Enabled Course is taught by Dr Pardis Pishdad-Bozorgi, the professor at the School of Building Construction of Georgia Tech. iTWO Enabled course is taught to the graduate and undergraduate students at Georgia Tech.
iTWO is the world's first platform that integrates virtual construction with physical construction, enabling virtual construction from end to end prior to physical construction. It supports projects managed under BIM environment throughout the entire lifecycle and across multiple project teams working in one single source of truth. In addition, iTWO is building up an eco-system to connect project lifecycle management with building materials SCM, financing, insurance, consulting, BIM design service, prefab factory, mobility, cloud, city planning, and more.
iTWO Enabled Course aims to deliver to the students not only a new technology, but also a new way of thinking and working. The students will be divided into teams, each team will run a project as real from beginning to the end on the iTWO integrated 5D BIM platform, and practice collaborative project planning and control in the iTWO virtual platform. The iTWO Enabled Course will develop talents, who will be ready for new thinking right after they graduate. These students will become the strong power to drive and transform the industry.
"Professor Pishdad is invited to present the first iTWO Enabled Course in the world on iTWO World Conference 2015. The first course at Georgia Tech will be the starting point for 88 further universities in the future. As a result, under the cooperation of RIB and the top universities in the world, we can develop ample iTWO talents together. Those remarkable talents will spread a new way of thinking in the construction industry and can work for every company using iTWO technology", Mr Thomas Wolf, CEO of RIB Group said.
